In front of the much-anticipated Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 version, previous KKR chief and Indian opener Gautam Gambhir opened up on the bowler who can mess some up for Russell and uncovered his optimal batting space.
"There may be a few of them in a difficult situation him yet not past that. I don't see bowlers other than presumably somebody like Jasprit Bumrah who can really inconvenience Andre Russell," Gambhir was cited as saying on Star Sports' show Cricket Connected.
"KKR ought not to send Andre Russell beneath No .5 in the batting request considering the structure he is in. What's more, the number ought not make any difference, the overs should matter. Batting position is an exaggerated thing, six balls can change the whole match in T20 cricket," he expressed.
"Thus, on occasion, it is conceivable, that you have such a decent beginning, that you can send Russell even in front of (Eoin) Morgan. It isn't important to send him after Morgan. You can send him at No. 4 too, it ought to be an over-situated batting line-up instead of saying that you won't send him over No. 5 or No. 6," Gambhir included.

It will be intriguing to see their group blend during the underlying phase of the up and coming competition.
On the off chance that they can gel as a unit and Russell can recreate his previous achievement, KKR will rage into the end of the season games. The IPL 13 release commences in the UAE from September 19 with the Kolkata establishment to open their mission versus Mumbai Indians (MI) on September 23.
